the doors locked and not open the door unless there is a uniform identified law enforcement officer on the other side of it. >> part of that process included controlled explosions. police say it was done merely out an abundance of caution. authorities hoping for some evidence as to dzhokhar's whereabouts. nbc news national investigative correspondent michael issakof is on the ground. >> we've been promised a briefing for several hours now that was going to give us an update on where things stood. clearly, it's a fluid situation. the last one we got just about an hour and a half ago was there have been some new leads authorities were pursuing. what that meant we do not know. clearly they do not have tsarnaev in custody right now. they still have very deep concerns about the threat he poses and the threat that others -- that an accomplice or accomplices may pose. and the most significant threat of all is the fact there might be ieds out there like the one found this morning that have been -- that have left on the streets of boston. making it very difficult, even if they get tsarnaev,
friend, and i like him a lot, but if he's asking us to ar understanding of the due process of law that has established us as a unique light among the darkness in this world, then i have to think through that very carefully. yes, i want to be able to question these guys. no, i don't want them to get all lawyered-up. but at the same time we're a country of laws. i do want our country to acknowledge terrorism when it's obvious terrorism. for example, i want us to say, fort hood, that was terrorism. little rock, the shooting of the soldier outside the recruiting office, let's be honest, let's say that's terrorism. the question is, do we suspend the normal due processes of law, whether it's to these guys, or to you or to me, and to designate somebody as an enemy combatant? that's a tougher one. in fact, it's tough enough that probably the smart thing to do is to bring judge andrew napolitano on board. i know he's got his view of senator lindsey graham's comments. i welcome judge napolitano, senior judicial analyst for fox news. judge, do we designate this guy enemy combatant or treat h
locomotives. about half a billion dollars to be spent on these new locomotives. in that section of law, one sentence was added that said these must be 100% american made. no one was making locomotives in america before that. but siemens, the german corporation, one of the biggest manufacturers in the world said, oh, half a billion dollar well, can make locomotives in america, sure. in sacramento, california, they opened a manufacturing plant, probably somewhere between 200 and 300 people working there today manufacturing 100% american made locomotives and on may 134, three years after they began this process, the first 100% american made locomotive in probably more than a century rolled onto the tracks of america. we can do this. h.r. 549 will provide that opportunity, using american-taxpayer money. i have another bill that does the same for wind and solar projects. we can do these things and put our mind to it and get past this business of austerity. we cannot solve this problem of american jobs with an austerity budget. we see it failing here in europe and united states as the long-term u
team of law enforcement folks who have done this the right way, by building from facts up to a theory rather than from a theory out. >> governor, the "boston globe" says it all had this morning for boston -- edging toward not normal, but there is still a lot of concern. based on what you know, has the threat passed? >> i think we think so. there are a lot of leads that law enforcement is still pursuing, the fbi and the atf, the state police and local police as well. there are a lot of questions that all of us have and that law enforcement have yet to answer for us including questions directly to the suspect, but there isn't any basis for concern about another imminent threat. >> let me ask you some particulars about the surviving suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev, who is now in the hospital. apparently he has a wound to the throat. did he try to commit suicide? >> i don't know the answer to that. >> do you know when doctors are saying he might actually be able to communicate? is there a real question about whether he'll be able to speak? >> i don't know those answers, david. i do know that h
trying to escape law enforcement. here's how it played out. around 10:00 p.m. last night, the suspects robbed a store. they then proceeded to fatally shoot an m.i.t. security officer and hijack a mercedes suv. the owner of that vehicle was held hostage for half an hour while the two brothers pulled $800 out of an atm. they released the owner of the mercedes unharmed. police chased the suspects into watertown, where this shootout took place. the suspects exchanged fire with police and threw explosives towards them. at one point, tamerlan sarn ev got out of the car wearing an ied strapped to his chest and was shot by police. his body was run over by dzhokah tsarnaev as he fled the scene. at present the manhunt continues. the police are looking for a younger brother and a possible accomplice. let's bring in nbc justice correspondent, pete williams. this is a quickly developing situation. how many people are the police looking for right now? >> i think they're not sure. i think we can say probably three. dzhokah tsarnaev, the person who is the man with the white hat and the marathon bombin
that law enforcement is still pursuing, the fbi and the atf, the state police and local police as well. there are a lot of questions that all of us have and that law enforcement have yet to answer for us including questions direct directly to the suspect, but there isn't any basis for concern about another imminent threat. >> let me ask you some particulars about the surviving suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev, who is now in the hospital. appare apparently he has a wound to the throat. did he try to commit suicide? >> i don't know the answer to that. >> do you know when doctors are saying he might actually be able to communicate? is there a real question about whether he'll be able to speak? >> i don't know those answers, david. i do know that he is in serious condition, but he's stable. and there are investigators prepared to interview him when he's able to be interviewed. >> the question about him coming onto the radar of the fbi two years ago, he was interviewed, he was tracked at the request of the russians, according to federal officials. that's questions now, for you and authorities in
thousands of law enforcement military personnel searching for this 19-year-old? >> well, they're working very hard obviously to find him. the question is whether or not he is still in the area. you have to do two three things. follow up on any leads they get based on tips, they're going to identify some locations where he might go to seek shelter -- family, friends, neighbors, that sort of thing -- then they'll look at the area they saw him last. that is the area of the shootout. they'll process the scene to see whether there is any blood evidence there that might actually be connected to somebody other than his brother. that would help them determine whether he is injured. >> his 26-year-old brother is now dead. we're told in the shootout with law enforcement he was discovered having explosive, an explosive vest almost like a suicide bomb vest. that's why there is so much concern that perhaps the younger brother, the 19-year-old who is still on the loose right now may also be wearing some sort of explosive device. that could be extremely dangerous. >> sure. that is the reason why they'r
was there when the law enforcement pulled up, along with his nephew and the entire neighborhood became an enormous crime scene in the final moments. here is bob glatz. >> it sounded like they said he's still alive, take cover. then some flash bombs or something, some loud noises went off after that. nick and i again kind of ducked down, not knowing what to expect. >> incredible that bob had the foresight and ability to shoot that in the intense moment. and he his nephew looking down from their home from an upper window. his nephew had a chance to just tell me what it was like to be in this neighborhood in lockdown and then to finally realize that the individual, this person that law enforcement authorities were referring to as a terrorist throughout the day had yet to be found, was right there on their block. take a listen. >> looking back, it's pretty scary because it was actually a fairly nice day out. we had gone out on the back deck a couple of times to get fresh air after being cooped up. and now i'm looking back thinking like, holy crap, this kid could have come up on the deck an
king, with night falling, night is actually to the advantage of law enforcement personnel. they have night vision goggles. they can control the night and if they want, they can light up the scene. >> they believe they have a tactical advantage this time as opposed to last night when they were surprised and the suspect escaped. they want to take their time, because of the risks to law enforcement and the risk to the neighborhood and because they are now amassing overwhelming presence to the point that they have essentially eye contact. they have visual contact with this believed to be the suspect and there are reports going in and among law enforcement on the scene as well as back to state officials, city officials, as far back as the justice department, the fbi in washington, trying to coordinate now the next move. yes, they believe they have a tactical advantage. they brought in extra units, military style vehicles in case there are explosives there. they have lighting and night vision equipment and the like if they decide to use that. and the question now is they believe time is th
a lot of questions in my mind and, as i say, more 30 the point of law in the minds of law enforcement as well. those are the kinds of leads that still have to be pursued and run to ground. >> is there anything on the videotape that maybe the public hasn't seen about his reaction that was particularly telling that moved the investigation along? >> well, the videotape is not something i've seen. it's been described to me in my briefing, but it does seem to be pretty clear that this suspect took the backpack off, put it down, did not react when the first explosion went off, and then moved away from the backpack in time for the second explosion. so pretty clear about his involvement and pretty chilling, frankly, as it was described to me. >> governor, as a former constituent department official, do you have a view of whether he should be part of the criminal justice system, as someone who is tried in court, or should he be treated as a terrorist, as an enemy combatant? that debate is only beginning now here in washington. >> well, that's the attorney general's call, and i have to respect
talked about the fact and law enforcement talked about the fact that they'd been through about 60% to 70% of the entire area. i'm assuming that in the hours since then, it's now, of course, 4:05 eastern time, but they made progress close to 100%. >> reporter: yeah, but what's the area? remember, the entire city is in lockdown now. they have told everybody in boston not to leave their homes, not to open their doors, except to law enforcement officers. so while they might be able to inspect the immediate area around here in watertown, it seems a herculean task to be able to do that for the entire metropolitan region that's essentially in lockdown right now. look, there's a massive police and military presence, actually, here, actually, it's right behind me, the staging area is right behind where i'm standing here at the parking lot of the watertown arsenal here. we've had early this morning convoys of military humvees, bus loads of police and state troopers coming in here and assembling for what we thought was going to be some sort of massive confrontation or assault here. we had blackhawk
police are also serving on the scene. there simply could not be a stronger concentration of law enforcement personnel anywhere in the the country right now as there is in the small blue collar town of watertown, massachusetts that find itself so in the middle of the focus this morning. you have to believe that folks felt that the worst of this had taken place on monday at that finish line, and those two bombings that left 160 people injured and three people dead, but last night it exploded in a whole new way, an explosion, a car chase with these two suspects after a quick stop at a 711, they carjacked another man, stole his mercedes. thankfully they spared his life. he was pushed out of his own car, he ran into the 711 and said they are trying to kill me. the people in the 711 thought that he was drunk until they finally realized that he was just in complete shock and was indeed revealing to them that he had literally just been in the car driving around for 30 minutes with these two suspects. what a harrowing experience that must have been for him. then tamerlan the older brothe
we know from law enforcement officials, stuck around, hung around, lingered. easily found afterward. it doesn't seem like they have expertise to be sociopaths and terrorists and horrible individuals, but they didn't -- they didn't have the wherewithal necessarily to get away. >> that kind of terrorism can occur whether it's international or domestic, tim mcveigh, one or two cohorts and not much else. we do think of things as big conspiracies, it sometimes doesn't happen. >> counterterrorism efforts are always developing. evolution of strategy. assuming this went down as we now believe it did, with two brothers acting alone or in concert with someone else. what adjustments will the law enforcement, counterterrorism community need to make? >> one thing for the american public to suspect, we are a big society with lots of mobility and lots of people coming in and out. there is going to be some level of risk for that, we saw that op monday. but we still had the boston marathon. it begins with our expectations of what kind of safety we have. there is going to be -- we don't know the fact
with armored soldiers or law enforcement officials with assault rifles. we've seen the blackhawks. we've learned the blackhawks are part of the massachusetts natural guard. they're used for transport. we've seen them in the last 15 or 20 minutes passing over. this is very active, and if this guy has been up as i have when i first started to pursue him at 11:00 last night, he's tired. he may be getting cornered in the final 30%. this is very dangerous. on top of that, we know from the controlled explosives that has happened in the last few hours that there are explosives out there. i just want to remind people. while it may look calmer in the scenes we're seeing today, the scene that i rolled up on here behind some 30 or 40 law enforcement officers, everything, fbi, swat, atf, boston police department, everything right into the blocks behind me about three or four streets, and it was aster phying a gun 5 as i've ever seen in iraq or afghanistan. this is a very violent individual, just like his brother. he is feeling perhaps more cornered and tired. it is imperative that they listen, th
it with a constitutional law attorney and former deputy assistant attorney general under president bush. he joins us now. i wasn't even aware this could be done in national security cases. tell us about how it works. >> sure. it's a rare exception. basically what it does is it allows law enforcement to delay issuing a suspect his miranda rights for a limited period to enable law enforcement to get information that would be relevant to public safety. for example, in this case one of the things we want to ask this guy is: is there another attack that might be imminent? who are you working with? are you part of a larger network? questions aimed at making sure public safety is protected, making sure we get any information that is time sensitive right now before he lawyers up and doesn't want to talk with us anymore. >>alisyn: we know that is vitally important because apparently the suspect planted other pipe bombs or explosives, at least, along the chase route. so they somehow knew that when they were trying to get away they had even, you know, planted other things to try to hurt and inflict more harm. so thi
on boston bombing coming up this hour. when we return we're going to get into the law of this case. dzhokhar tsarnaev was formally charged today. he'll be prosecuted through the criminal justice system despite republicans who say he should be treated as an enemy combatant. >>> later, the russian connection. we have new details about the older brother, tamerlan, and his six-month trip overseas to russia, that area, as he became increasingly more devout in his religion and radicalism. >>> here in washington, the marathon bombings have already started to change the debate on things like -- you knew this was coming -- immigration. >>> finally, life started to return to normal this weekend in boston. i was up there as the slow healing begins. this is "hardball." as we say up there, "hardball." the place for politics. >>> he will not be treated as an enemy combatant. we will prosecute this terrorist through our civilian system of justice. >> welcome back to "hardball." that was of course, white house spokesman jay carney short by before 1:00 p.m. today making clear the boston suspect will not be t
which the younger brother escaped. according to one law enforcement source, actually driving over his brother's body. here is the brother's uncle in an emotional plea delivered late this morning. >> i say dzhokhar, if you're alive, turn yourself in and ask for forgiveness. and the victims, from the injured and from those who left, ask for forgiveness from these people. >> we already obviously are learning a lot about these two suspects. we know that dzhokhar who is 19 years old, first came to the united states in 2002, he was 8 years old. his family, he came here on a tourist visa. we know with his mother and his -- at least with his mother. let's go back to the aunt now speaking in canada. >> naturally, i guess, you know, whatever i feel will come out. natural. it is so natural. what is so different about it? >> have you talked to police at all or -- >> i haven't talked -- nobody is contacting me. i called fbi first line. fbi line. if you have any hints, let us know. that's the number i called because knowing these two boys, knowing -- believing, strongly believing they wouldn't do t
verbally. he's in the intensive care unit of beth israel hospital here. our susan candiotti citing a law enforcement official with knowledge of the case saying dzhokhar tsarnaev was shot in the side of the neck. unclear whether that came during friday night's takedown of him when he was captured or shootout he and his brother had thursday night into friday morning with police in the streets of watertown. right now no charges were filed today. we heard rumblings there may be charges filed today. ended up not being the case, don. maybe in the next couple of days. >> all right. let's talk about the bombs. you have learned something new, something about where they came from, brian. >> reporter: that's right. our susan candiotti citing a law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation says the current thinking right now, don, is the two suspects bought the bomb components locally. somewhere here in the boston area. but that they got the guns from somewhere else. this official emphasizing that the gun traces are under way right now. and so that part of the investigation is continu
be illegal, anyway, he's an american citizen. the law bars trying american citizens in military tribunals, but you know, i think this is to some extent moot. a, because the administration has decided how they're going to proceed, its going to be in civilian court. and b, the limited nature of the interrogation at this point because of his condition. >> have authorities interviewed katherine russell? tamerlan's wife? we know we've seen her, she's gone back to the cambridge house briefly to apparently get some mail and other things. she is believed to be with her parents in rhode island. are they interviewed her to know how much she knew about his radicalization? >> they will. they very much want to. they want to talk to every member of the family. they want it talk to all his friends. they want to know not just the answer to that question, but fill in as many pieces of the puzzle as they can. what were they up to in the months leading up to the bombing, what did they do afterwards, did they talk about plans? were they in touch with other people? the quick answer to your question is we don'
the suspect is. i mean, no shortage of police here. it's incredible the amount of law enforcement presence that is here to watch this, what appears to be final act play out. >> yeah. that's right. it's incredible because we are outside the perimeter that was searched all day long. i mean those 20 blocks in watertown and cambridge that he we were telling you about all day long. that was over this direction. but this is over here. so, if he was here all day he was outside the perimeter where the police have been searching for him all day long. i find that really interesting. right after the 5:30 press conference that where the state police said well we didn't get him, we're going to start pulling things back, almost immediately, i'm talking like within half an hour, we hear the gunfire and then everything starts erupting over here in this direction. now, we did have a camerthat we moment that those explosions were going off, and we hope to be able to turn that around for you fairly quickly. we had to move our live truck. we had to move all kinds of things, folks so please bear with us. we ar
be appropriate under federal law in this case. >> big debates just getting going. >> is. and it will go on for a long time. the court case will drag on with people second guessing judgments made. >>> a deadly effort quake has hit southwestern china we keep our gaze on boston but we are also looking to china where saturday violent shaking woke up its people. the death toll is climbing in a region familiar with the deadly earthquakes. çñ >>> this is live coverage of the aftermat aftermath. >> we'll have more from boston in a few minutes, we want to trache you to other parts of the world and other headlines we're watching. by the end of sunday, local activists say the bodies of 566 people killed over the preceding six-day period were found across syria. 566 bodies. we warn you the images you're about to see are disturbing. at least 450 victims were said to have been found in a damascus suburb. cnn cannot independently verify the images or the information we're bringing you from inside syria. >>> we turn our attention to china. the death toll is climbing after a powerful earthquake struck
jersey governor chris christie wants to make some of the toughest state gun laws in the country even tougher. >>> good morning from fenway park! it's monday, april 22nd, 2013! now here's "the daily rundown" with chuck todd! boston strong! woo! >> what a great way to begin what hopefully is a better week for everybody thanks to the baby giraffes, an improv group from boston. those good morning videos, you could be tomorrow's winner. let's get to my first reads of the morning. let's run through everything we've learned since friday night's arrest. federal prosecutors may file terrorism charges today against dzhokhar tsarnaev, the 19-year-old man accused of the boston marathon bombings. tsarnaev is under guard in serious but stable condition at a boston hospital with a gunshot wound to the neck. some investigators believe that wound may be the result of a suicide attempt before his arrest. he's now being questioned, but only for brief periods because of his medical condition and is responding mostly in writing because of the injury. investigators have been trying to piece together the e
flags but i don't think would require calling law enforcement. >> he made two protests on two different incidents. he branded people non-believer. clearly he was getting quite intense about his religion. >> yeah, i think that's where a qualified scholar or leader would need to step in and talk to him and see what his mindset was and from there, make a call on kind of what direction he was taking his religion. >> what has been the reaction in the mosques, both yours and the one of course that tamerlan tsarnaev attended? >> with regards to what? >> well, to what's happened. >> our reaction to what? >> your reaction, your discovery that somebody attending one of the mosques has been the perpetrator of this appalling bombing. >> i think first and foremost as bostonians, our hearts and prayers are with the community. then there's a sense of anger and frustration that someone who would frequent one of our faith institutions would carry out such acts, so people seem to be very angry and upset with what he's done. >> is there any new system that you can put in place to raise more warning flags
will prosecute this terrorist through our civil system of justice. underu.s. law, the united states citizens can not be tried rather in military commissions. martha: but house armed services commission buck mckeown argues that the white house should reconsider. he says, quote, it seems premature to declare that we will not treat tsarnaev as an enemy combatant since we don't know about his affiliations. clearly american citizens must be tried to civilian court, but the same citizen viciously attacked his countrymen, should be exploited for his intelligence value before any trial begins. that will be a debate that rages on for some time on this issue. we'll talk more later in the show with former new york city mayor rudy giuliani. bill: looking forward to that coming up here. meanwhile the feds want to talk to the widow of the suspect, tamerlan. she is mother of 3-year-old daughter between the two. the her lawyer said talks are underway with the feds how to proceed with that. he revealed on the last day tamerlan was home when his wife left for work. martha: well the officers who capturedded dzhokh
surveillance. >> a federal law enforcement official agrees and says tamerlan was not on a terror watch list or any no-fly list because the u.s. never deemed him a threat. so there were no alarm bells when tsarnaev came back to the u.s. six months later. >> but the time he returned, all investigations, the matter had been closed. >> but even sew, it's not clear if the department of homeland security was charged with monitoring travel even know that ztsarnaezatsarnaev was on his r. >> we are trying to make sure that all of that information that was available was shared. if it wasn't, there may be somebody who dropped the ball. >> a u.s. official said even when there's a hit in the system it doesn't prompt anyone in law enforcement to take action. it's just monitoring for suspicious travel. joe johns, cnn, washington. zbr well, we're getting more breaking news now. a u.s. official telling cnn's jessica yellin about the ongoing investigation that there is no hard evidence of accomplices. there is no known evidence to extremists. they're still not certain what radicalized them. additionally inve
. but as the colonel said, because of that extraordinary collaboration and cooperation by all of these law enforcement resources and assets and more to the point people, professionals, who brought their "a" game, we have a suspect in custody tonight. >> the community stood strong. it was a call from a resident in watertown. we asked you to remain vigilant, and you did. we got that call and we got the guy. and so we can't thank you enough. you've done everything and more than we've asked. extremely proud of law enforcement today and what we've accomplished. >> this whole ordeal started monday with the bombing attack at the finish line of the boston marathon. three people were killed, more than 170 injured. the suspect's older brother died early friday morning following a shootout with police. the two men are also suspected of killing an m.i.t. police officer, 26-year-old sean collier, who was sitting in his patrol car. now, police hope that the surviving suspect will be able to give them some critical information about a possible motive and whether any more people were involved. nbc's katy tur has been
was hiding in and surrendered to authorities after about 25 minutes of negotiations with law enforcement. that's according to an official with knowledge of how he was taken into custody. we did know that authorities were having some type of dialogue with the suspect as he lay in that boat. we didn't know precisely how long it lasted, wolf. >> if the charges, joe, are actually filed today in the coming hour or two or three, will the justice department just make an announcement? will there be a news conference? do we have any indication how they're going to let the american public know that charges have been filed? >> we have been told that there's potential for a news conference, that is, of course, if the authorities go ahead and file those charges. it's not necessary for the suspect to actually be presented before a judge today, though these are extraordinary circumstances, and they could come up with any number of other provisions. so we'll have to wait and see. and that's what law enforcement authorities are telling us, wolf. >> and these are federal charges, joe, so the attorney gene
and terrorist groups. leven said to hold him under these circumstances would be contrary to our laws and jeopardize our effort to prosecute him. during interviews before suspects are read their rights is often not admissible during the trial. the issue on miranda rights is further complicated because the u.s. is a u.s. citizen. many of the rules cannot be used on americans. live in the newsroom, katie utehs. ktvu news. >>> people are in texas are being allowed in their homes. curfew is still in effect and there is limited water and electricity. many are still trying to learn the condition of family and friends hurt in the explosion. >> it's really hectic, but we are patient because we know the extent of damage on the other side. and we got friends and family that we don't know about over there. >> 14 people died in the fertilizer plant explosion, including 11 emergency responders. 200 more were injured. >>> this weekend, texas is also remembering the deadly raid on the branch compound in waco. 76 people died in a fire twenty years ago following a raid on the compound. waco and west
out. brian, you got very, very close. you were the only real non-law enforcement personnel as close to the scene as you managed to get, but tell us what you saw and what you heard. >> reporter: wolf we saw the final negotiations between the police and the suspect, just as this was playing out in its most dramatic moment, we have some new elements to show you from that final exchange. we got there just as it was all playing out, pretty much at the very end. as he was cornered, happe corne tsarnaev, police say engaged with gunfire. it went on for several minutes and police lobbed in flash bang percussions to stun him. in the end, authorities showed their determination to capture the suspect alive. listen to officers negotiating with him as he is holed up inside a boat in a backyard in watertown. we snaked through alice and back lots to get to within a couple hundred yards of the boat. during negotiations, there was a word of reassurance. and an appeal to someone they knew was in pain. as we shot this exclusive video, police rushed us, saying we were in the crossfire zone. >> clear out
law enforcement. >>> from what we understood, you know, they had searched, police had searched much of this watertown community. >> that's right. they've searched several homes going door-to-door. they've searched just about every home, at some poibt. point. clearly, this was not over yet. they needed enough to get out of there and get out of there fast. we knew that things were very fluid and that the situation was very dangerous. so we faded back to beyond the perimeter a little bit more. we got up to a rooftop and we're able to shoot from a little bit of a greater distance. there were flashlights we could see moving around the backyard. clearly, they had secured the scene. they were going around checking out and processing the boat. some of the residents here said they searched his closets, under his beds and everything. he just felt incredibly relieved that it was all home at that point. thank you tonight in water town. a lot of people want to hear his story. >> there are so many stories in this book that we all want to hear. we now know who the alleged bombers are. the question
. pipe bombs, all the ingredients to build more bombs. i guess the suspicion is this is what law enforcement authorities have told me over the past few days. these two brothers if they would have gotten away with it, they were going to do more of this down the road. >> i think you're absolutely right, wolf. it was actually another side to that coin. either they were going to do more and that's what the other explosives were for, or perhaps when we are aware now there was a third pressure cooker bomb. was there in fact a third perpetrator who was supposed to join them on the day of the boston marathon? was that bomb built for that person to put in place at the same time? while we optimistically are hopeful we have accounted for everybody who departed this attack on the marathon, we can't yet rule it out. those other explosives could have other explanations, other perpetrators or other attacks. >> i'm going to bring tom fuentes into the conversation in a moment. where did they get the explosives, where did they pay for the explosives, questions we're going to continue to explore as
metropolitan area. only law enforcement, of course, is able to take to the skies in that area. we have what can only be described as an extraordinary situation in a major american city this morning. i want to turn to don berelli, a form fer special agent with the fbi, part of the joint terrorism task force, and has expertise and a security consultant. so much to talk to you about but i think you can't fathom a more dangerous situation for the officers who are responding here. >> absolutely. that was my first thought. it does not get much worse than this. you have somebody who has both weapons and explosives, and it appears they may have this person contained. appears, we don't know that for sure. but the concern, obviously, is could he be in a barricade situation, which is an extremely dangerous position for tactical officers and worse than that, could he take hostages and that's where the danger goes through the roof. this is the concern immediately as far as tactically what is happening on the ground there. then you have the added angle of possible accomplices. what's happening around the cit

counter terrorism officer. we are hearing from local law enforcement that looks like the suspects were working alone. and that came from watertown police chief. he knows a lot of information, but can we say that at this point? >> congratulations to him and his officers, fantastic job, textbook job really. that's certainly the hope of everyone that they were operating alone, but i know that the fbi and others are concerned about the other explosives, for example, that were found in the apartment of the two brothers. >> how do you account for those, for the pressure cooker, the other weapons and all that stuff. >> exactly. it begs the question were they planning additional attacks? the third pressure cooker bomb they used in the pursuit, was that supposed to be deployed by a third person the day of the marathon? these are unanswered questions that i know law enforcement is working hard to try to resolve. >> could profiling have made a difference in this case? how do you determine if they were part of a larger cell? >> profiling is kind of a bad word, we don't like profiling. >> but you h
today to praise law enforcement and those involved in tracking tsarnaev down. >> americans refused to be terrorized. ultimately, that's what we'll remember from this week. that's what will remain, the stories of heroism and kindness, resolve and resilience, generosity, and love. >> authorities caught up with the suspect after a tip from a watertown resident. he was hiding in a boat parked outside a home. he is now in a boston hospital and nbc's ron allen is joining me from there. ron, with a good afternoon to you, let's get the very latest on his condition. are you getting word from the hospital or are they staying somewhat silent on that? >> reporter: absolutely silent, alex. they're basically saying ask the fbi, ask the police about that, and they are saying nothing as well. it's a very tight lid on top of any information about him so far today. that could change perhaps, but you have to understand and, of course, you do, that this is a very, very delicate and sensitive situation and so it seems unlikely that the doctors are going to tell us a lot about what his condition is, par
is the federal law version of what a bomb is, if death results, then that is a capital offense. the government could seek the death penalty. massachusetts is a state that does not have the death penalty. so the only death-eligible charge here would be the federal offense, even though four people were killed, the government alleges, the three victims of the. bog and the campus policeman. >> okay. in terms of the investigation, where does that stand now? what are the most prom neinent angles that are being pursued? >> these main questions are really the ones that have been true ever since the discovery of who these two people were. and the directions that they're headed in are really going to be the same here for weeks. so the investigation is not going to be, you know, taking sudden turns. the main questions are how and where did they assemble the components of the bomb. how did they buy them? where did they build them? were there any practices? secondly, what happened when the brother, tamerlan, the older brother who was shot to death thursday night, what happened when he went to russia last y
or law enforcement believed the suspect could have fled. the investigation has continued to develop. we can't give you all of the reasons, all those developments right now. we will in the fullness of time. we can't right now. but, based on those developments, we feel it is prudent to be able to say to people "you can get back out as long as you are vigilant." >> did he he get away or do you know where he is? >> who is helping you? just the state police or additional municipalities? >> this has been an ongoing effort of the joint terrorism task force. it was from its onset and it will continue to be that. so you have the fbi, the state police, and all of the local police departments, clawgd the boston police department. [several talking at the same time] >> do you believe the suspect is still in the boston area or has he fled? >> i think i would be -- no, i don't have any direct knowledge that he is here in the boston area but we don't think he would get much further. his ties seem to be here. >> brian right here. >> how and when did you know that they were being islamic suspects? >> wel
's marathon bomb, now responding to investigator's questions. law enforcement trying to piece together what was behind the attacks. scott cohn has the latest on the investigation. good morning, scott. >> good morning, andrew. we expect there could be criminal charges against dzhokhar tsarnaev today. chillingly after the bombing a week with ago today, he and his brother tamerlan appeared to resume their normal lives. friends say he was at dartmouth, work withing out at the gym, talking about the bombing. and they are still in disbelief. >> it's hard top comprehend someone could go doing normal college kid stuff to bombing a marathon. >> and that about the older brother, tamerlan, 26 years old? he apparently talked to his parents in russia after the bombing and said everything was okay. he he went back to russia last year and was not interviewed afterwards. that has some on capitol hill wondering how did the intelligent agencies miss this? >> the fact that we could not track him as to be fixed. it's people like this that you don't want to let out of your site. this was a mistake. i don't know
shown quite a bit of skill, and evidence of training. one senior law enforcement official told us a short time ago, these guys were almost textbook perfect in terms of operational planning and security. they stayed off the radar, but beyond that, they have shown a high level of sophisticatifi sod skill in terms of evading police, and when they were confronted with a police shoot-out, incredibly, one of them escaped that cordon. he made the point that there were more police officer there and the suspects were outgunned. he summed it up by saying when have you ever seen that? they don't known he might have other confederates or other plans. the search, while focused in watertown, not a tunnel vision situation. they may have to expand that and perhaps even to neighboring states. charlie. >> we're pleased to have scott here at our table this morning. what's intriguing are the things we don't know. not only where is suspect number two. if he got training, where did he get it and when? >> charlie, we should hasten to mention a police officer was murdered apparently by these two men. ove
for law enforcement and for politicians to paint this as black and white. we like to see things in terms of good and evil. evil-doers, out doing evil. and certainly the act itself is an act of evil. it's horrible what happened. but then you put that next to the description of dzhokhar by his friends and the one that emerges from his twitter feet. when you hear the president say we're confronting the face of evil and you hear his friends say, he's the nicest guy ever. he arrived, he would pick you up. >> and adopted kittens. twitter photos of kittens. that doesn't excuse anything, in terms of complicating the picture here. >> it does lend credibility to the idea that his older brother was the one that might have influenced this. it's the perfect age, what, 26 and 19, for the 19-year-old to look up to the 26-year-old. and i think it's revealing, too, that he kind sounds like he drove over his brother. >> yes, well, in the escape. >> i'd like to see, if that's true, it would be interesting to see if they charge him with that. you know -- >> involuntary manslaughter. >> that would be one of
tsarnaev treated as an enemy combatant under the laws of war. lester? >> michael isakoff, thank you. for more on the government's attempts to find out what motivated these suspects, we're joined by nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent, andrea mitchell. in our washington bureau, andrea? >> good evening, lester. intelligence officials, the fbi, a global search for what motivated tamerlan tsarnaev's terrorism. was it chechnyan nationalism, at the white house today, the president met again in the situation room with his national security advisers. he was briefed by the fbi director and top counterterrorism officials and others for 0 minutes. an official tells us afterwards that so far, there is no evidence of foreign involvement, but they're looking. they also say they are getting good cooperation now from russia, with whom as you know the u.s. has had very rocky relations over the last few years. russia's president vladimir putin spoke with president obama last night and the two leaders are discussing the importance of working more closely together on counterterrorism in the futur
will release that videotape in a court of law. they've described it in extensive detail. that's going to be powerful, powerful evidence in a potential trial. tom, thanks very much. let's recap quickly the surviving suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev, now facing federal charges, among them use gd and conspiring to 0 use a weapon of mass destruction rulgting in death. let's bring in our senior legal analyst jeffrey toobin. jeffrey, what happens next? >> what happens next is that the case will be presented to a grand jury. prosecutors will begin presenting evidence, leading to an indictment. i think the process is going to slow down a great deal. remember, this crime was only a week ago. the government is going to have to assemble a lot of scientific evidence trying to tie material that could be connected to the defendant, to the bomb itself. this is complicated stuff. i think it's going to be months in the grand jury until a final indictment is ready to be presented probably. and then at that point the case will be presented to a trial judge, and there will be motions and then a trial. >> he no
to die. as if these images weren't chilling enough, today in a newly filed criminal complaint, law enforcement officials described how 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev calmly placed a bag allegedly containing a homemade bomb made out of a pressure cooker and packed with nails and bbs on the ground in a crowd full of innocent bystanders and simply waited. when the first bomb, allegedly placed by his brother, went off nearby, investigators say they could see everybody in the crowd react with alarm. everybody except tsarnaev, who waited a few seconds, walked away, and allegedly set off the sec bomb. days later he and his older brother tamerlan got in a shoot-out with police. today we learn more about the events leading up to that epic clash. according to the new criminal complaint, the night began with the brothers tsarnaev allegedly car jacking a man. the victim describes one of the brothers getting into his car and saying, did you hear about the boston explosion? i did that. the victim says the brother then removed a magazine from his gun, displayed a bullet, and said, i am serious. th
